SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba dropped a three-set match to visiting Lincoln Memorial in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The Railsplitters took the match 27-25, 25-15 and 25-19 to improve to 12-6 overall and 8-4 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 6-17 and 2-10.

Allie Grubb led Catawba with 13 kills. Micah Ensor added seven kills with Kimberly Hurtado posting five. Kylie Morgan recorded 11 digs, while Morgan Hester had 27 assists, 10 digs and a pair of blocks. Jade Brooks served a pair of aces.

Rylee Storms led three Railsplitters with double figures in kills. Storms posted 13, while Kai Wesemann talllied 11 and Lindsey Nartker 10. Nartker added 12 digs and three blocks.

LMU took over early in set two. A 7-0 run that included two kills and two blocks from Gill pushed the Railsplitters to a 10-6 edge. Back-to-back kills from Grubb cut the LMU margin to 15-13, but Lincoln Memorial scored 10 of the final 12 points to win the set.

Catawba came back from an early 7-2 hole in set three to make it 13-12. LMU stayed in front and took a 20-13 lead on a kill from Nartker. The Lady Indians inched within 23-19 on a kill from Morga, but kills by Storms and Nartker ended the match.
